House of Emily

based on poems by Emily Dickinson

Sound Design by: Almeda Beynon

Theatre Plastique, New York

First Robin

Three Times

We Parted

For this installation, each performer created a "pop star persona," and performed the role in an environment dedicated to their world. The music was written by a composer, sound designer, and one of the performers. All of the lyrics are based on Emily Dickinson poems, and the installation explored the role of pop stars in today's society. They parallel Dickinson in quirk and mystery, and her poems exemplify some of the major themes in female-driven pop music today.
